Front view, also looks like 1996 may be double stamped slightly?
Any help is very much appreciated...

Please look up Daniel's videos on sending in coins. You will save a lot of money in the end. Despite marketing pressure in the hobby, sending in coins for grading is most likely going to COST you money you could have saved in the long run. Most coins are not going to be valued on the market, after being slabbed, as the cost to grade them.

If you do find a legit better item, please post pics and ask here before submitting it to be graded. Even just being a better coin will not always justify what you pay to have it slabbed.
